Perfection.

It’s good to be good
It is better to be real
Perfection does not exist
It swims like an eel
It slithers like a snake
While it steals your attention
Whether you chase it or sit in fear
Perfection’s fixation dominates how you feel
Till you’re lost in being good enough
when you should simply be real

About the Author: I have a B.A. in Honours Religious Studies from the University of Waterloo and I love all major world religions – Eastern, Western, or in between. I’m genderqueer, and I’m comfortable with male, neutral, and female pronouns. I’m married to my dear wife Lynn, who is the love of my life, my best friend, and my muse. I think far too much, and often have too many ideas to know what to do with. And I am a doing being, just like you!
